When it comes to winter forage in the Southeast, it’s hard to argue with annual ryegrass. Widely grown in the southern U.S., ryegrass has become an important component for forage-based livestock diets, and it’s only becoming more popular. According to the University of Florida, more than 1 million hectares of annual ryegrass are grown in the Southeast, from eastern Texas and Oklahoma to the southern East Coast, every year.
Ryegrass has been adapted to many soil types and provides proven animal performance with extended grazing periods throughout the mild southern winters, making it a perfect winter forage. It’s become a much-sought-after cool-season forage throughout the region due to its production.
